Randy Travis Sentenced For Wild DUI Arrest

Country singer Randy Travis has received a 180 day suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to drunk driving on Thursday.

The arrest occurred last August in Texas after a 911 caller reported seeing a naked man in the street. He was originally booked for "retaliation and obstruction" after refusing to take a Breathalyzer test and threatening to shoot officers, according to the LA Times.

Travis avoided the retaliation charge with his guilty plea but is facing two years of probation and a $2,000 fine. If he is found breaking the law within the next two years he could be forced to serve the 180 day jail sentence.

Part of the deal also requires Travis to place himself in an inpatient alcohol treatment facility for a minimum of 30 days and complete 100 hours of community service, according to TMZ.

Also for the next two years he is required to install a ignition interlock device on any vehicle that he drives. The device is used to check the blood alcohol level of a driver and prevents the driver from starting a vehicle if they are intoxicated, according to the report.
